From Tigit Jon’s perspective –
Vietnam may be known for its coastline. But unfortunately, extreme trash problems and over development from a tourist standpoint has ruined a lot of the coastline. In my opinion, come to Vietnam for the mountains, not the coast! There are fewer tourists in the inland areas and the locals are warmer and un-spoiled too.
- Chronic Trash problems throughout the country at naturally stunning locations.
- Restaurants are unable to deliver what you order. It will always be a lottery. I recommend carrying paper and pen and writing for the waiter. They will still get it wrong somehow 🙂
- Mattresses in cheap hotels are usually uncomfortably hard.
- After a long and hard day of driving, to be welcomed by the hotel with no greeting other than. “PASSPORT”.
